I graduated in Environmental Biology in 2006 by the University of Lisbon and received my master degree in Ecology and Environmental Management in 2007 by the same institution, with a master thesis in sexual interferences in Sorraia horses. In 2012 I performed a post-graduation in Animal Behaviour and Animal Welfare in the Instituto Superior de Psicologia Aplicada (ISPA), with a work on the effect of environmental enrichment in piglets’ behaviour, skin lesions and weight gain.
Since 2013 I am conducting a Ph.D. in Biology (specialty Ethology) at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. I am a member of the “Centro de Filosofia das Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa (CFCUL)” and an external collaborator of cE3c, within the "Evolutionary Ecology" research group.
My PhD research is supervised by Dr. Susana A. M. Varela from IGC & cE3c Prof. Anne Magurran from the University of St Andrews, and Prof. Luís Vicente from CFCUL.
The goal of my PhD is to understand the mechanisms underlying males’ mating decisions, using guppies (Poecilia reticulata) as the model species.
